JOIN KATE AND MIM-MIM ON THREE MUSICAL ADVENTURES IN THE NEW DVD
My youngest daughter, Bella, is a huge Kate & Mim-Mim fan. Last Christmas her wish list to Santa was filled with line after line of toys from this hit animated series. So, when I heard that the there was a new Kate & Mim-Mim 3-episode DVD releasing from this popular series, I had to get my hands on a copy to surprise Bella with and ask her if she would help me review -- which I knew she wouldn't say "No!". :-)
I wish you could have saw her face last week when this DVD arrived. She was quick to show Savannah, who really isn't a fan, kind of like..."see what I got and you didn't." But, Savannah was curious to see what episodes were included on this recent DVD release, so she sat to watch with Bella (and all of Bella's Kate & Mim-Mim figures she got from Santa, that she positioned next to her on the couch).
This DVD like is says in the title is all about music, which is perfect for my girls, who love singing and making music with the musical instruments they have and some they have made. My girls got into this DVD, and as a parent, I loved sitting down with them and seeing just how great shows like this are for them, to help with learning things about friendship, working together, dreaming big, using their imagination and especially problem solving. They have no idea they are learning important life skills because the episodes themselves are so much fun to watch, and keep them engaged from start to finish.
If you have a Kate & Mim-Mim fan in your life, why not consider picking up this new DVD release to add to their Easter baskets, to leave in the car for day trips, or to keep them entertained during any upcoming snow or rainy days. My girls, especially Bella, loved this DVD release, and I know your kids will, too!
More about this recent DVD release:
"Public Media Distribution, LLC announced today it is releasing three stories from the popular series “Kate & Mim-Mim” on the DVD “MUSICAL MIMILOO.” These three toe-tapping tales will have kids dancing and singing as they watch Kate and Mim-Mim solve problems and help their friends. In these three adventures, Kate leads a quest to fix Callie’s Mega Music Maker, an island-sized instrument, Kate and friends put on a trumpet flower concert for the Boom Chicka Queen, and Gobble uses his ability to sing to free the group from a cave!

“Mega Music Maker”
Kate is building a sand castle, but the wind chimes she places on top aren’t working. In Mimiloo, after Mim-Mim accidentally breaks a one-of-a-kind music recording, Kate, Mim-Mim and their friends head to the Singing Seas to visit Callie, a giant octopus. After learning that Callie’s Mega Music Maker is broken, Kate and the gang work to fix the island-sized instrument so they can re-record Callie’s wonderful tune.
“Boom Chicka Bees”
Kate can’t get the timing right to jump rope. In Mimiloo, Gobble has a case of the sneezy snorts and needs Boom Chicka Bee honey tea to feel better. In order to get the honey, Kate must lead a concert for the Boom Chicka Queen.
Kate and her parents are staging a talent show, but Mom is hesitant to perform. In Mimiloo, everyone is preparing for a dance party! While gathering crystals to make a disco ball, the gang gets trapped. Only Gobble’s beautiful voice can save them – but he’s too nervous to sing in public! Kate must show him there’s nothing to fear.
Inspired by a real life little girl, “Kate & Mim-Mim” follows the fantastical adventures of 5-year-old Kate, who, together with her toy rabbit Mim-Mim, travels to the fantasy world of Mimiloo where Mim-Mim comes alive as a larger-than-life playmate. In each story, Kate and Mim-Mim and their group of friends discover exciting new places and set off on adventures, all in the hope of solving a puzzling problem Kate has encountered in the real world.
Exploring themes of friendship, adventure, and problem solving, “Kate & Mim-Mim” encourages children to use their imaginations and work together, believing no problem is ever too big to solve!
